The Family Bible

The Family Bible

My father's father was the wisest man I ever knew
Sixty years of education and seven years of school
Farming kept his body strong
At night the only books he owned
Kept his mind sharp as a tack
The family bible and the farmer's almanac.

When to plant, when to harvest
How you reap just what you sow
When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't
There was a plan for early frost
Salvation for the lost
Words to live and die by, front to back
The family bible and the farmer's almanac.

One came from his mother handed down the day she died
And the co-op sent the other every year at Christmas time
He knew the seasons to the day
Knew Paul and Peter by first name
He could answer any question he was asked
With the family bible and the farmer's almanac.

When to plant, when to harvest
How you reap just what you sow
When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't
There was a plan for early frost
Salvation for the lost
Words to live and die by, front to back
The family bible and the farmer's almanac.

He knew the way to get
Through this life to the next
While others spoke of faith he found the facts
In the family bible and the farmer's almanac
The family bible and the farmer's almanac.

The family bible and the farmer's almanac...
